NIA Caraga - National Irrigation Administration Surigao del Sur Irrigation Management Office (SDS-IMO) turned-over the Cabangahan Communal Irrigation Project located at Cabahangan Multi-purpose Gym, Tago, Surigao del Sur on November 7, 2017.
The project is under the Extension/Expansion of Existing Irrigation System (EEIS) CY 2016 Fund with a total project cost of P23.6 million. It is set to irrigate 100 hectares of agricultural lands within the area of Tago, Surigao Del Sur.
SDS Acting IMO Manager Engr. Dexter A. Sablaon recalled the challenges faced by the project.
“One of them is that the plans were already prepared way back Calendar Year 2010, because the project was intended to be funded in the other program but unfortunately it was not realized”, he said
Engr. Sablaon said that about 65 farmers of Cabangahan Greenfield Farmers Irrigators’ Association Inc. will harvest the benefit of the said project.
